Nothing to lose but a bit of ink. I asked just in case the ink may mask the problem - if so the paper would of course be usable.

Unfortunately, when Ilford rebranded their line and changed a few things as far as qty in box per version of paper, they also increased their prices.  ...............................

Chris:

You say rebranded but Ilford says all new products (see the ad at the top of this page - most times).  Has IGS been reformulated or is it merely a change in packaging (and price)?

Packaging - I've been assured this paper is the same as it's always been - it's an important piece of their product line.

Have you tried printing the top sheet to see whether it makes things better or worse once ink is applied? I'm still using my older stock so I haven't come across this yet.

Printing does mask the problem, but whether you can see it or not depends how hard you look. I wouldn't sell it to anyone, but it's good enough for a proof that would eventually be thrown out anyway.

OK, sounds like an issue that should be brought to the attention of their senior management. It can't cost them a mint to slip a plastic envelope around the paper.
